Junk Kouture Recycled Fashion Show How to start Step 1 Choose a theme. This will help you in finding different patterns, colours and forms (shapes) to inspire your garment. Here are some broad themes to choose from: FEATHERED CREATURES UNDERWATER WORLD THE TOY SHOP LIFE ON THE OCEAN WAVE CITY LIFE FOOD, GLORIOUS FOOD FACTORY GIRL UP, UP IN THE AIR INSECTS FEATHERED CREATURES UNDER THE MAGNIFING GLASS UNDERWATER WORLD ANIMAL KINGDOM LIFE ON THE OCEAN WAVE REPTILE FOOD, GLORIOUS FOOD THE SOUND OF MUSIC UP, UP IN THE AIR Step 2 Brainstorm your theme for textures only. Look on the Internet for good close up images of textures. Print out and try to recreate these textures using a variety of recycled materials. Make these samples on small pieces of fabric. Stick your samples and sources (images that inspired you) onto an A2 piece of paper to create a ‘Mood Board’ (a page which shows where the inspiration for an design came from). Have a look at samples made by the other groups also and borrow ideas from each other. Step 3 Brainstorm your theme once more, but this time for shapes. What interesting shapes and moving parts can you think of that are connected to the theme. Use these to help you start designing. Use the templates and tracing paper to start your design. Have about 5 or more different designs before you decide on the final one. Try out different combinations of shapes. Decide what fabrics that you have created are going to go on which parts. What else can you add? Be imaginative and creative. Step 4 Start to make!!!!
